Back to Manhattan!

Hey folks,

Not sure if any of you remember me, but I used to be a fairly frequent poster on the Manhattan boards until I moved to DC a little over a year ago.

Well, I'm heading back for a bachelorette party in early August and am in charge of finding a restaurant for the 4 of us girls.

I was told to find a funky (yes!) yet trendy (ugh) place for the 4 of us girls with a limited budget (approx $30-$40 per person including alcohol, tax, tip). I'm thinking somewhere in the EV/LES would be the most appropriate.

Also, if anyone has thoughts about decently priced hotels in that area as well, please let me know!

Thanks, my friends!

      1. Chowhound has a very narrow mission--where to find deliciousness. General travel planning questions, like where to stay or what else to do while visiting a town, are off topic for our boards. Please keep your replies focused on helping the poster find great chow, as off topic replies will be removed.

        1. I'd suggest Kuma Inn in the LES.
          The food's good, it has very reasonable BYOB policy (I haven't been in a while so please call ahead to check on this) and it's funky and quite trendy for the price.

          1. Kuma inn is a great suggestion - I thought someone might suggest this! Cuisine really doesn't matter - we're open to anything chow-worthy!

            Chowhound team: Apologies for the hotel inquiry! I'm getting so excited about my trip, I'm clearly forgetting the rules!
